60C...Then you start to worry. Anything over that, turn it off. When overclocking you should be looking at a temp of 45-50 full load

yeah for some reason the stock heatsink doesn't cool well at all. I had the same problems with the temps of my 3500+ getting over 50 degrees but I upgraded the HSF and now load temps are at most 44 degrees

Well if I'm on a game and doing some extreme stuff like that, my CPU temp can get to 60 degrees C. I don't worry though. It still works fine...

Its idling at 43 degrees C at the moment, but I'm not doing much.
